Ever look at a bare spot like a bench or reading nook and wonder what you could do to make it a bit more appealing? There are plenty of ways to use minimal accents to create a subtle yet impactful decorative impact. Why not experiment with a playful approach to turn an ordinary space around with the least fuss? We find that decorative pillows make the perfect pièce de résistance of any room.

Throw pillows are lovely additions that can enhance your decor almost effortlessly, they tie in and elevate an existing aesthetic and add a warm, cozy touch to any corner (they are pillows after all). Whether you’re leaning into a cottage-style, bohemian, or contemporary room, throw pillows will accentuate the character and vibe of your home.

You’ll be thrilled by our Coterie Brooklyn throw pillows that exude a minimalist appeal and understated elegance. There is a mix of classic and contemporary details that blend seamlessly with a home’s bold or neutral palette.

But where are you gonna put all those pillows?

Interesting Places to Use Throw Pillows

We relish using throw pillows in surprising, unexpected ways to complement the look and feel of a room. Here are our favorite ways to liven up a home with our throw pillows:

Tastefully Decorated Entryway Benches

An entryway bench is the first thing a guest will see when they enter your home. Throw pillows act as a subtle reveal to introduce newcomers to your home’s decor and style. You could place a cluster of throw pillows on both ends of the bench to add a pop of color to an otherwise mundane surface. They also serve as stylish props for support when you sit on an entryway bench to remove or slip into your shoes.

Pretty Baskets

Instead of piling throw cushions into a concealed storage box, we love stacking them inside a wicker or metal basket! This way, you inject a space with thoughtful details that create an inviting, uber cozy vibe. Get inspired to update plain, unoccupied corners with unique accent pillows in a basket to perfectly anchor a room’s existing style. You’ll adore how doing this uplifts a room in the most natural way…and keeps pillows at arms length, should you need them.

Inviting Window Nooks

Throw pillows lend empty nooks oodles of comfort that will make you look forward to coming home after a long day. How about using them to effortlessly turn a window nook into a pleasant corner or an empty bench into a spot you get comfy on and gaze out the window with a cup of tea? You’ll love how these throw pillows instantly cozy up the place!

Uplifting Dining Booth/Benches

Dress up long benches or cushioned seating around a dining booth with a smattering of fun throw pillows. Why? Because throw pillows will let you break up the monotony of these plain surfaces with pops of color and character. Say goodbye to boring meals! Seating areas will now permeate a charming aesthetic and make mealtime an affair to anticipate!

Dreamy Kids Bedrooms

Whether throw pillows are placed on a reading chair or in a crib, they lend a kid’s bedroom an undeniable sense of comfort. Of course you’ll need to move them from the crib when babe moves in, but thats the perfect time to transition them to a new spot! Feel free to get super creative with how you place our Coterie Brooklyn cushions. They’re versatile accents that effortlessly turn drab corners into chic nooks.

Ultimately, you want to create a soothing environment that translates into a haven of comfort. We love arranging statement throw pillows on a freestanding storage bench or inside a teepee playhouse.

To Sum it Up….

Throw pillows leave plenty of room for experimentation and can easily balance a room’s aesthetic. Create a living space that you’re proud of and enjoy living in by making throw pillows a part of your interior decor.
